That depends on the makefile.  Usually, there's a user-settable
variable called CFLAGS that you can use to customize things.  But
basically, with the cross compiler, you call a canonically named
executable instead of the normal one.  So for instance, to compile for
64-bit windows, instead of:

gcc -mno-cygwin  file.c

you would use:

x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc  file.c

Make sense?
